They are creating a false religious experience
They are purposely defying the Bible and it’s instructions.
Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not a drunkard,
Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.
The drugs are highly addictive. They are putting themselves right in front of temptation.
Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
What about do not tempt the Lord. Jesus used this in the testing from satan.
When church leadership does this, how to they counsel people on drinking and drugs?
Therefore let us not pass judgment on one another any longer, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
But take care that this right of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.
1 Corinthians 8:
They are purposely putting themselves in the path of temptation
WRONG the answer is that maybe your dating methods are wrong because they have human interference in the equations. Scientist assume certain things and input that information into the calculations. So actually the time frame is only theory, even if they want to state as fact.
Maybe this just proves the Bible.
When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years.” The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.
This also provides proof of and the cities of giants. Especially if you look at
And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim), and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.”
Nephilim = Giants
And Joshua came at that time and cut off the Anakim from the hill country, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, and from all the hill country of Judah, and from all the hill country of Israel. Joshua devoted them to destruction with their cities.
IN the last 10 years; Maybe if they would have trusting God’s word they would have known this earlier in their careers.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
God warned against divination
“When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you.
“You shall not eat any flesh with the blood in it. You shall not interpret omens or tell fortunes.
You are dealing with satan, you are dealing with demonic forces.
As we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners much gain by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and us, crying out, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation.” And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And it came out that very hour.
The spirit dimension is alive and real in our world. And it should not be taken lightly. The Bible tells us in:
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Lions should not be toyed with.
People are concerned and worried. Especially in today’s culture. We do have a lot to be concerned with. war, economy, jobs just life in general But scripture says
do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
We are to trust in the Lord, put our faith there, put our troubles there and our concerns.
In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him.
For he does not know what is to be, for who can tell him how it will be?
Culture and the world look in all the wrong places. Remind of scientist in other story
declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’
If you are troubled and looking for peace, don’t turn to satan and cults. Turn to God
and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
